Headlight swap
« on: October 09, 2017, 01:29:18 AM »
Due to the poor headlight on the 950, would the 1200 full LED headlight fit ??????
If I had a second brain cell it would be so lonely......

A question I have been seeking an answer for since I bought mine. It also a question asked on the Multi1200 forums as well as the base model is non LED. Not seen a definitive answer as yet.

After being used to other bikes with even worse headlights, the 950 has the best I have had for a long time! I replaced the dipped beam with the upgraded OSRAM nightbreakers which improve things further again. The one thing that sucks is the full beam though - not sure what to do on that!

Ive changed to the Osrams and admittedly they are better, my last 2 bikes had LED headlights and the difference is like the proverbial night and day.

I had a quick look at the led fitted to the endure and could see now bulb connections as we do so don't know if wiring would be an easy fit.  There is a website that shows how to wire the dipped lights to stay on with main beam.  I think that may be the way to go.

Yes I agree, this is by far the best lights on a motorcycle that I had, and I had a few.... Need more lights use brighter lights or add 2 more lights to help on the corners.

Did anybody try to replace standard H11 halogen bulbs with H11 led?
